Ombre lips are a great way to add dimension; the deeper the red, the better. Beauty blogger Jackie Aina’s application is masterful.

Outlining the lip with a concealer is an easy way to make the red pop! @beautybyttee does an amazing job of using an orangey red to contrast the highlight on her cheekbones.

Sometimes, a subtle red lip is just the pop of color you need to complete a barely there makeup look.

How about pairing your bold lip with a hot two piece? We love how @t0nit0ne used a classic red to accentuate her beat face.

To accomplish this full lip like @itssimplyjackson, use a lip pencil before applying your color.

Miss Brit slays it in this look because the red lips compliment her blonde highlights. It’s light, fun and great for all seasons!

We love how @ropo.demure wore her lipstick! It’s bold, fun and her piercing draws the right type of attention to her lips.

Simplicity is always best and Laila is doing just that! Ruby Woo is giving her the perfect summer glow.

Play with different shades of red like @ronkeraji did. If you don’t have a concealer to outline your lips, you can also use a black lip pencil and blur out the edges for a contrasted look.

To make your red lips stand out, add a gold highlighter on top of your lips like @kingmalimagic.
